The Commonwealth

Massachusetts is a state rich in history and endowed with large bays that attract boaters, fishermen and others interested in water sports. Gardens and parks abound as well as lighthouses, and Boston's skyline offers nearly limitless photographic possibilities. The state is home to Harvard, the oldest university in the United States, as well as Mount Holyoke College, the first college for women. Like some two-thirds of the Massachusetts population, photographer Susan Cole Kelly lives in Boston. Her Massachusetts travel imagery displayed in this showcase has a strong sense of place. Included are skylines, landmarks, nature, landscapes, architecture, history, outdoor activities, cities and towns, people, shopping and more.
